Osmo Mobile 2 Osmo Mobile 2 is a smartphone camera stabilizer that captures smooth videos and high-definition panoramas with cinematic movement and incredible ease.

The cresting wave of CES is about to break, and DJI is announcing their new gadgets with a second generation Osmo smartphone stabiliser announced. DJI says they're up to the job of stabilizing even larger cameras like the Canon 5D, in addition to Panasonic's GH series and Sony's Alpha models, and even if they've got lengthy zooms.

The gimbal can be locked down for camera mounting and calibration, so setup is easier than with other devices. A push mode can adjust pan and tilt by hand, with axis locks to make the whole process quicker. As with the Osmo Mobile 2 there's a three-axis gimbal which promises to smooth out shake and judder in both photos and videos. It adds CamAnchor, which sets up multiple shots and lets you toggle between them when shooting a scene. DJI also showed us an early preview of an upcoming Focus Control Center consisting of a focusing dial and a screen, allowing users to really control their entire camera while its mounted on this support system.

The DJI Ronin-S isn't available for purchase yet, but there is a sign up to be notified form on their website, so you can be notified when it becomes available. Pricing is not yet set.
